Canon Exploratory School just completed their annual Peer Mediation training Oct. 16th.  The PM's will represent their school community.  All 18 PM's are in 4th-6th grade.  We also trained our Playground paras & will continue to use the 7th grade past Peer Mediators for the Middle School grades.  Their job is to help students who need to work out problems with the 4 step Negotiation Process.  A Conflict form is the contract both sides will agree on to solve the situation.  These PM's will be available during recess, lunch or anytime not during class time work. You can find the PM's wearing a Lanyard with the words "Peer Mediator" and their name.  This Peer Mediation process is part of our School Health Improvement Plan for School Wellness. Thanks to Susie Wiebers and Shirley VanIwarden for teaching the training.  CES Peer Mediation coaches are Carrie Hanenberg, Shirley VanIwarden and Della Rieger.

Community C walked to Canon Lodge on Thursday 9-25-14.  We have been focusing on building relationships within our school community. Community C decided that we wanted to connect with the outside of school community as well.  So, we visited the residents of Canon Lodge and presented them with beautiful hand decorated cards made by the kids.  Also, the kids played "balloon volleyball" with the residents.  It was an awesome experience for both the kids and residents.  They all had a wonderful time!!
